What is detoxification?

If you are suffering from drug or alcohol substance abuse or addiction, such as alcoholism, detoxification is a pivotal part of the process. Expelling the drug from the system and by treating withdrawal symptoms efficiently is paramount to recovery.

With on-hand prescribed medications and psychiatric support for those whose withdrawal experience is challenging, Rehab 4 Addiction in Surbiton can get you ready for recovery sooner than you think. We are here for you around the clock, this is not a ‘cold turkey’ do-it-alone type situation.

We have the right people there to support you through it all. Detox programmes are imperative to a successful recovery.

What is psychological rehabilitation?

Once the substance is successfully expelled from the body, the root of the problem is ready to be solved. Through planned cognitive therapy sessions and extra help from group support, understanding the reason for the dependency and the effects or damages it may have caused is the next step in a process of long-term recovery.

Our highly trained experts at Rehab 4 Addiction are here to discuss relationship rebuilding, grow your confidence for both social and work environments, and repair past responsibilities that may have been affected by your behaviours whilst using the drug.

Once an assessment has been made, we’ll work through mapping out a programme tailored completely to you and your experience. This means that if you find it hard to speak to someone in a one-to-one type of environment, we can get you involved with support groups.

Speaking to others about their experiences and building a bond through joint recovery is also beneficial to create new and stronger bonds in the future.

Vice versa, if you feel speaking to others would not suit, we can connect you to alternative therapies such as art or music therapy, meditation or yoga, equine therapy, and more.

What alternative therapies are available at Rehab 4 Addiction?

Equine therapy is a massive step for those looking to rebuild confidence and recover responsibility skills, as you will work with a horse and their handler to care for and nurture the gallant animal.

This type of therapy can help you understand your behaviours and emotions, as horses tend to mirror the human they are experiencing. So, if a horse is nervous around you, you will feel compelled to show it courage and that you are safe to be around.

Once trust has been built with the animal and a connection is established, you can also ride the horse and carry out other challenges only possible with mutual trust. The relationship between horses and patients has been found to provide support and reduce the effects of depression during withdrawal phases.

Acupuncture is another option for those particularly suffering from alcoholism, for a long time this process has been used to treat pain caused by chronic conditions.

Acupuncture is a complementary practice in medicine where fine needles are inserted into the skin at ‘meridians’; specific points that are considered to be lines of energy.

When used properly, acupuncture can alleviate depression as well as the pain experienced by sufferers. Some experts believe that acupuncture is also beneficial to detoxifying the liver and other bodily functions.

Practicing mindfulness and meditation are practices that have been used for millennia. Mindfulness specialists can guide people suffering from alcoholism and other substance issues with the main goal to show each patient how to become more aware of their emotions, cravings and thoughts, instead of reacting to the stimulants.

Some studies show that mindfulness programmes can be more effective than other relapse prevention techniques. Although this is contested, addiction and substance abuse are different for every user and therefore the most effective treatments for recovery and relapse prevention are completely down to the individual.

Meditation is self-control and mental disciplinary practice which can be key in helping you to quit alcohol successfully. The ability to quit the substance without negative thought patterns is possible through meditation.

Choosing to repeat or change a thought process can not only eradicate the need for the substance but also guide your mental health into a positive way of thinking. Thinking is believing, so repeating affirmations such as ‘I can quit alcohol and live a happier life’ on a regular basis is a solid grounding for success when it comes to long-term recovery.

Another method is picturing yourself overcoming the affliction and how your life would look different without the need for alcohol and the negative effects it has on your life. Believing you can lead a happy lifestyle is key to success.

How can Rehab 4 Addiction in Surbiton help?

If you have come to the realisation that you’re ready for help, all you need to do is complete a short phone call assessment. This can take around five to ten minutes where we will discuss the severity of your affliction and how it is affecting your life and those around you.

After this, we will get to work on mapping out a programme tailored completely to you and be there for you every step of the way. Are you ready to lead a new lifestyle and overcome your addiction? Call Rehab 4 Addiction today on 0800 140 4690 for a free and confidential chat.
